Grass on the wayside = Michikusa : a novel by Sōseki Natsume( Book )

"Grass on the Wayside (Michikusa), Soseki's only autobiographical novel, was written in 1915 when he was forty-eight. He was ill at the time and died the following year. This is an intensely personal document in which the author describes his loneliness, the failure of his marriage, and above all his sense of the futility of human relationships. No one in Japan before Soseki had written with such concern about his own marriage or with such intelligence about his private life." --Back cover
Kokoro : a novel and selected essays by Sōseki Natsume( Book )

40 editions published between 1957 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 421 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Natsume Soseki's importance to Japanese literature can be compared to that of Dickens to Britain or Henry James to America. Like these writers, his work now holds a hugely popular and important place in the literary imagination of his country. Unlike them, his work is only recently coming to the attention of readers from overseas. "Kokoro" joins the recent publications of "The Gate", "The Tower of London" and "the Three Cornered World" from Peter Owen as part of an international programme to bring one of Japan's best known authors to a new English speaking audience. As Damian Flanagan says in his new critical introduction "Kokoro" is the Soseki novel that has been given most attention by critics and the public in Japan. On one level, a meditation on the changing face of Japanese culture and its attitudes to honour, friendship, love, death, it is also a sly subversion of all of these things. The novel centres around the friendship between the narrator and the man he calls Sensei, who is haunted by mysterious events in his past. As the friendship grows and the narrator gets to know more about the man he so admires he is increasingly intrigued by this hidden history. The Sensei, however, refuses to reveal anything until the third part of the book when the narrator is called away to look after his sick father and the truth is revealed in tragic circumstances, etching itself onto the narrator - and the reader's - "Kokoro" : Heart
Kokoro by Sōseki Natsume( Book )

30 editions published between 1956 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thieves, gamblers, prostitutes, confidence men: these and other such types mingled with priests, merchants, and ordinary citizens along the great trunk road between Edo (Tokyo) and Kyoto in early 19th century Japan. This colorful cast of thousands eddies and swirls around ne'er-do-well narrator Katsu Kochiki (1802-1850). Written after he had retired and adopted the name "Musui" (dream-besotted), Katsu's memoirs provide a rich and often amusing account of everyday life in Japan when it was still isolated from the rest of the world
